Chesterfield Road, Staveley, Chesterfield, S43 3XD
A warm friendly welcome awaits you at Storrs Road Methodist Church and Centre, situated on Storrs Road, just off Chatsworth Road on the western side of Chesterfield.
Service times, frequency and capacity for physical gatherings are currently limited due to the current pandemic. Details of planned services and how to book a place are provided on the Services page.
The Church family is also active online with services held together with other congregations each Sunday on Zoom at 11.00 am. These include occasional all-age services when children join in for a short time before leaving for their own Zoom Sunday Club. For more details see the Worship Online page.
Children and families are very welcome. Services aim to meet the needs of all who take part. People in the church want to reach out to the community to bring the message that Jesus is alive and tell of how He makes a difference in their lives.
There are some online groups which meet during weekdays, including a monthly 'LIFE' group. Details can be found on the Study & Learn page.
Details about how to join us at any of these services can be obtained from our Minister Revd Tracey Harris.
About the Building
The Church has been lovingly cared for since its opening in February 1900 and has been a consistent witness in the community since that time. In 1973 the adjacent Centre replaced a large wooden hut and was opened by the Duke of Devonshire. The Centre has recently been re-roofed, funded through the generosity of individuals and grants.
Serving the community
The Centre is an excellent resource for both Church and community groups.
Storrs Road Pre School, which is Ofsted registered, has 24 places for children aged 2 to school age and has continued to operate during term time.
When the pandemic eases, it is hoped that many of the regular activities that make use of the Centre will resume. These include a monthly community lunch, Sunday Club, Time Out (a weekly social on Tuesday afternoons), Lent Courses, and coffee mornings.
